Sarah Ann Cowdrey Pleads Not Guilty to Robbery Charges in St. Johnsbury Restaurants

Sarah Ann Cowdrey was arraigned on Monday for allegedly robbing two downtown St. Johnsbury restaurants in July. Cowdrey, 32, pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of assault & robbery with a weapon for attempting to take cash from the Domino’s Pizza cash register with a knife at 250 Railroad Street on July 13. But the Domino’s employees stopped the attempted robbery. Cowdrey also pleaded not guilty on Monday to a misdemeanor charge of petit larceny for allegedly stealing $328.87 from the cash register at “Subway” located at 18 Federal Street on July 12. Cowdrey is already jailed due to a parole violation, so the state asked for conditions of release, which Judge Michael Kainen approved. Cowdrey faces a possible sentence on both charges of one to 16 years in prison and a $1,000 fine.
